This Is How You React To Your Period, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Oh, periods! I assume you, dear reader, are a woman (if you are not, hello, welcome, grab a seat) and understand the trial and tribulations of menstruation! Even if you love a good horoscope, you might not realize how you truly react to your period. Maybe you think you're cool, calm, and collected. Maybe you think you're not mean to your poor roommate. But we truly know how you react to your period... and it's based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
Aries, Aries, Aries. When it's your time of the month you're probably battling through the pain with a smile on your face. Granted, you'd rather be in bed watching Real Housewives marathons. Your boyfriend, roommate, and coworkers know better than to offer you assistance during your cycle, as they know they'll be met with a stubborn response. Regardless, you don't view your period as an excuse or burden but rather something you were born with that doesn't slow you down.
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)
Organized Taurus's know the exact day they will start their mensuration cycles making you ready and able when the floodgates open. But, patient Taurus don't forget to buy some organic Tampons if you've run out. You might be busy as a beaver but don't put your feminine health and hygiene on the back burner. A Taurus hates dirty things so you are meticulous about your bathroom and sanitary habits. Good on ya!
Gemini (May 21st to June 20th)
Hey Gemi. How you doin? Don't let the pain of your menstruation cycle get you down. You might be frustrated or depressed when that time of the month rolls around but deep down we know that adventurous and charming Gemini is waiting to break free. Hormones, mood swings, and well, um, blood can't slow your speed.
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd)
Cancer, your zodiac cycle starts at the start of the summer you gossip-y little minx. Don't let your clique-ish mentality ostracize people away from you during this time of the month as you'll want to surround yourself with loved ones. So host a little red moon party or see a raunchy comedy with your friends and treat yourself this period cycle.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Since Leo's element is fire, you might react to your period in a multitude of ways. You balance between three options: tell everyone exactly what you're going through, down to the nitty gritty details. You might protective the female body, lambasting government officials who threaten to take birth control and other necessary health care away from women. Or, you might be a little sloppy. Crying to your boyfriend because you stubbed your toe sloppy. But we don't judge you dear Leo, we're with you.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
Did you know Virgo is associated with the stomach and waist? So you really don't handle your periods well. From calling in sick to seeking pity, getting your period calls for a national holiday in your household. You likely have a to-do list ready to go when you're up and running and not glued to the couch with a heating pad on your body. Your boss doesn't even need to ask where you are on the third Monday of every week but your hardworking work ethic saves your ass, once a month.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Oh sweet, Libra. You are so levelheaded when it comes to your period, we probably wouldn't even know you were menstruating if we tried. NOT! Your indecisiveness is tangible and your emotions probably bounce around so much that those around you don't know what they're going to get when your uterine lining sheds each month. You might be fine one minute, crying the next, and screaming at strangers thereafter. Getting your period sucks but getting a grip on those hormones will benefit all that come into contact with you during your sweet, special time of month.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
Scorpio might be on a path of destruction during that special time of month, so watch out every other zodiac sign! Lashing out, snarky comments, or passive aggressive comments will come out of your mouth for a whole week so kiss your loved ones goodbye and tell them you'll see them on the other side. But we know you Scorpio, you can't stay spicy for too long. You won't let a little blood stop you from getting frisky with your partner either.
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
You might dream big Sagittarius but too big and you might forget about your period. Yup, Sagittarius you are honest and enthusiastic with your life but when your period hits your underwear each month you become flaky. You might forget it's your time of the month, you might forget to call your friend back, or you might forget you're a Sagittarius altogether. Luckily for you, your period is a guarantee (mostly) each month but you better start tracking your cycle or you might have a little surprise coming down the uterus.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
The motivated Capricorn wishes she didn't have a period. If she could pay for it be gone, she would. If she could have an intern do it for her, she would. If she could surgically remove it, she would. But she can't! So dive right in and get comfortable because menopause might not be around the corner for you, dear Capricorn. Use one of your strengths, fearlessness and lean into your menstruation cycle. You are a woman it's time to hear you ROAR!
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th)
Okay, Aquarius, you might enjoy your period a little too much. Since your symbol is The Water Bearer you might indulge in some long extended soaks in the tub. This is normal for you as you are very comfortable with your body, and all things that exit it. You lean towards organic tampons, or better yet, menstrual cups. Because, of course you're thinking about the environment on your period. You could teach a few of the other zodiac signs how to embrace the female body!!!!
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
As a dreamer and a healer, Pisces tries to find homeopathic or natural remedies to help with the pain of the menstruation cycle. You love a homemade tea for cramps and live for CBD oil infused lotions for back pain. You look down upon Midol and can be a little out of touch with reality when someone asks for an Advil for their endometriosis. Although soft and kind, you'll need to back down off your holistic high horse when other women deal with their periods differently than you do yours.
